Nice catch Brent, even with the coin missing.  8)

When I got home after work today, this little gem was waiting for me, text from the auction:

Early conceptual hard copy for the Wicket fireman outfit. The final figures were very different from this! Only a very small number of these hand-cast prototypes would have been made.



Ewok Firefighter 1st Shot Prototype to show the difference between the two.



I'm very happy to add this piece to my collection.

A furry, annoying cowboy, but yeah. ::)  Nice piece Dale, if you're into small, furry things.  I guess. ;D

after not picking up anything for months, i picked up these 3 recently.  it always seems like there are no good deals to be had, or too many too close to each other.

Been looking for a DSD for a while.  This one's a Palitoy 45C:

My latest add-ons are 2 Lando Calrissians (General Pilot), a Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) and a Death Star Gunner. All loose, but in very good condition.

I finally got my hands on a loose 12" scale Darth Vader in great shape.

Now I just need a CDN boxed one.   ;)

Oooh, more goodies today!

I received each Micro Vader, except for the unpainted Bespin Freeze Chamber version, as well as the POTF Vader coin.

I decided to pick up a few mini rigs on ebay for my kids Christmas, and did alright tonight.

These images are rehosted from the auctions I won:


$6.01

I already have an MTV-7, 2 MLC-3 & a PDT-8, but the ISP-6 looked great.  I'll either upgrade my existing mini rigs or keep these as extras.

$15.50

Not a mini rig, but was on my "don't have" list and looks fun for the kids since it fits two figures:

$26.02

And the one that got away:

$13.48

I'm pretty bummed about not winning the Endor Forest Ranger.  It seemed like a really cool ship, and all four of these auctions were from the same seller so I was looking forward to the combined shipping.  Maybe I'll look around the forums for one?

Anyway, these are my first vintage purchases in some time.  I'll probably be checking in around here more over the next few months as I look at filling holes in my collection.

Nice grabs Deanpaul, the kids will be happy.  :)

The Droids Side Gunner box looks to be in pretty good condition.

Wow, $15.50 for 4 mini-rigs?  Nice find, they look to be in excellent shape.  I myself still need that PDT-8 to this day.
